A set that is 1,500 today should be more capable than my old 3,300 set!
Maybe you are not taking that into account. Also just like tire warranties that are prorated they could have discounted this a little.
Step back and look at it dispassionately. It may look like a fair deal.
And just so you know, there is a sure fire way to have Samsung to stop talking to you. Many don't know and fall into "the pit." They threaten legal action. A check is put on your file that you are pursuing legal remedies and since it's now a legal matter the service folk are now absolved of further interaction with that customer. Be sure not to do that!
I purchased a Samsung DLP TV several years ago, with an extended warranty that is still in effect. The light engine has failed, and Samsung cannot fix it. The warranty says if they cannot fix it they will replace it with a then-equivalent model. I paid $3300 for a top of the line model. They want to replace it only with a bottom-of-the line $1500 model, and they have not committed even to that definitely. I believe they should replace it with an equivalent model now available for $2500. We have been without our large screen TV for 2 months, while Samsung continues to stall, refer me around to various people, doesn't return phone calls, a complete runaround. I am wasting my subscription to satellite TV programs and movies. I am finding that the $750 I paid for the extended warranty was a complete waste of money and I will never buy anything from Samsung again.
